    Glad I has able to cobble up a repair for my broken clutch cable in Woodland Park, Co. Looks like it's going to be mid to late October for an OEM replacement, DANG! What really sucks!! I replaced this cable back in April with brand X, after about a month on another trip into SW New Mexico and eastern AZ, the clutch became so difficult to pull, I couldn't! We made it home only clutching for starts and stops. I put the old stocker back on, problem solved, at least until last week. So glad Victory decided to make both ends of the cable the same, sure made a field repair relatively easy! Guess I will be waiting! IMG_5621 (1).jpg

    Barry, did you take the aftermarket cable out of it's sleeve to see why it was binding up? The only one I've seen bind up like that is a buddy of mine that a dealer tech oiled it when doing a routine service. Oil destroyed and swelled the teflon lining which caused it to bind up.

    I have an extra OEM one somewhere. I bought it used from someone as a spare to take on trips. I'd be happy to lend it to you. PM me.

    No. I felt the $80 refund was worth more than finding out what happened to the cable, it was a brand new cable. Witchdoctors refunded me all but the shipping. I installed the cable myself and only greased the connecting ends. Funny thing, I do remember thinking this cable does not feel any better than my 75,000 mile 9 year old cable. I was expecting an easier clutch pull.

    Thanks so much, I think my bush fix will get me by until the new cable comes in. If not, I'll just buy a savruride and install it. Besides, you might need your spare cable between now and then.

    FYI, I just received a stock report for the clutch cable. There are quite a few out there if anyone needs one.

    I'd personally go with a Barnett.

    Just received my Barnett throttle cables. There is a difference in quality compared to OEM. The plastic adjusting wheels and 90* glides that go into the throttle housing were just cracking in my hands due to age. I had to change my grips when I discovered this. Anyway …. A call to Barnett and they were made to order adding 2 “ and we’re here in a week. Black anodized fittings and if I recall the conversation with Barnett ….they are brass.

    So appearance wise, the Barnett cables look better than the OEM?
    Dang! I didn't even think about throttle cables? Guess I need to put that on the list.

    Thanks

    Hands-down the Barnett throttle cables or a definite step above the OEM cables.

    I am looking at the Platinum series, at this point I want the best cables. I am going to pull the trigger on the clutch and throttle. I might just keep the OEM clutch cable I bought as a spare?

    Just an update, I paid through the nose for an OEM clutch cable and it's here in my hands.
    Thanks to slickvic I have now ordered new push and pull Throttle cables, and thanks to bikendad I ordered a Barnett clutch cable all from WD. I plan to try the Barnett again, hopefully with better results. I'll just wait for the WD order to come in before I install the new cables.
    Now for an oil change, this should work!

    Is the Barnett clutch cable as good or better than the OEM cable? With all this talk about broken clutch cables I think I will pick up a spare just in case. The OEM one is around $135.00 and the clear Barnett is $108.00.
